Safe and Effective Acupuncture Treatment

Fire Cupping & Smart Cupping
Cupping therapy is an ancient practice used to treat a variety of issues. It has continued on from its first use in ancient China, nearly 2000 years ago, up to the present day.
It can be considered massage in reverse; where massage exerts pressure downwards onto the muscles. Fire cupping produces negative pressure since it burns the oxygen, depriving the vacuum of oxygen.
We offer three types of cupping; Fire Cupping, Moveable Cupping and Flash Cupping. Cupping is an noninvasive treatment to promote blood flow and is most often used for muscular pain, joint pain, skin issues, or respiratory disorders.
